Clarence Clemons A Stroke Victim

Clarence Clemons, the gentle giant of the E Street Band apparently suffered a stroke at his home in Florida.  Rolling Stone magazine confirmed a report by ShowBiz411.com saying that The Big Man of Bruce Springsteen's group was 'seriously ill' after suffering the apparent stroke tonite  (6/12).  Clemons, who has endured a number of debilitating ailments in recent years, had been scheduled to do the national anthem before game 2 of the NBA finals last week but canceled due to a problem with his hand.  He spent much of the last year recovering from surgical procedures to address spinal and knee issues, and recently told Rolling Stone that he had been experiencing hip problems.  The eternal optimist, Clemons proclaimed in February that he would '...keep going 'til I'm not there anymore'.  We hope that time has not come.
